After seven decades we continue to place an extraordinarily high value on working with other family-run enterprises that embrace similar values & practices as we do. We take pride in working with partners who share passion for growing the premium quality ingredients Bigelow uses in prized family recipes.
At Bigelow Tea, we have always believed consistency cannot be overrated, so we treasure these long-standing relationships. Using exceptional ingredients means that you will be thoroughly delighted each and every time you brew a cup of your favorite Bigelow tea.
Lemon peel is an essential ingredient in 23 of our family recipes.
It’s premium lemon peel that takes many of our blends from beyond good to great, so we look for the perfect blend of sweetness and tartness in the lemon we select.
The lemon peel used in Bigelow teas are 100% grown in the USA to meet strict USDA, FDA and California standards.
We are so proud we use the tastiest, sun-kissed lemon peel we could find that we recently traveled nearly 3,000 miles from Connecticut to Central Valley California, to witness how our long-time supplier of 30 years grows, harvests, juices and zests some of the world’s finest lemons.
Having started their groves in 1947, about the same time that Bigelow family began blending tea, their depth of knowledge has been perfected over the past 70 years to include state-of-the-art processes that fully utilize every bit of the valuable fruit that their extensive ranges of lemon trees produce. From growing to juicing to milling to zesting, virtually no part of this precious fruit goes to waste!
What does our combined 140 years of experience mean to you, our consumer, who loves our Lemon Lift® Tea, I Love Lemon® Herbal Tea or any of the other Bigelow Tea recipes that incorporate lemon peel into one of the family recipes?
It means we go the distance and that, cup after flavorful cup, you can count on sipping our premium teas.
